Yes, the high order point I was trying to make is that something is 
wrong if you need to specify a long list of tests to run.   While we all 
may take whatever short cuts we choose to get our day to day work done, 
there should be a standard set of tests[1] that we agree should be run, 
and which can be run with reasonably concise command line args.
